look at some of the other countries and the policies that they have, excuse me. you can look at canada, united kingdom, australia, for example. they set up a scoring point system that reward people for being able to contribute to the host country. now, i have long said that the immigration policy in the united states of america should be designed to enhance the economic, social and cultural well-being of the united states. that should be actually the policy of any sovereign nation in the world, should establish an immigration policy for the purposes of enhancing the economic, social and cultural well-being that have particular sovereign state. in this case, it's the united states of america. we should also understand that one of the essential pillars of american exceptionalism is the rule of law. if we have contempt for the rule of law, if we have some of the highest profile people in america openly speak about hiring illegals to take care of their home and at the same time advocate for the dream act which is amnesty for a specific class of people, we regard -- reward for illegal behav

neighbors to the north, canada, those kinds of systems work less well. it is very hard for us to go to a sovereign nation and say abide by this cap we might do it with canada. we will never do it with mexico and we will not do it with places like china. please comment on recycling, when and how does it work and not work. what does it cost? we have fortunately heard this afternoon from the trash me man, my colleague van benjamin, who published a work on the myths of recycling. i will do my best to summarize him in very few words. when does it work? not very often. how does it work? not very well. what does it cost? a lot. pretty well summarizes everything there is to know about recycling. it works when -- back to my concluding remarks -- it works when it is profitable. so aluminum works pretty well because in fact it makes economic sense. how does it work? with private incentives of people saying, hey, it is worth something to me to recycle my aluminum cans. it does not work when we end up spending far more -- and i do not mean just in the more money because money is just a way of me

the way over there to canada and france, and that green line, that's the united states. we're second only to japan in terms of corporate tax rates. now, it's pretty hard for me to see the logic of complaining about things being made overseas, when what we do with our tax policy is tax corporations so heavily that you create an incentive to chase production overseas. if you're a businessman, you're competing. you're competing with all these other countries and what you're going to have to do is be competitive or else people won't by your product. so for us in congress to complain about foreign imports and things, when we've got a corporate tax rate that's second highest in the world, is once again an example of democrat tax policy being completely at odds with the goal of a strong economy and lots of jobs. you can't keep taxing the creator of jobs without losing your jobs. i think it's straightforward. i'm trying to make it simple. because there's one example after the other that our policies just don't make sense. here's a chart that's done a little more colorful way, we compete with fran

. such as the sharp 225 study launching next month and studies in canada and europe. finally, wrapping up here, steps for harnessing technology, we have work to do, three big areas. one is to continue to support development of technology. i do think it can play a role to prevent distractions. these kinds of technology solutions need validation. we need research in passenger cars to figure out where they can deliver benefits, optimize those benefits and minimize any unintended consequences. secondly, we've got to make sure that as we introduce technologies, they continue to be integrated well, especially with the basic driver interface, and that will require shared guidelines across all manufactures, not just automakers and share test procedures. building hopefully on what the auto-- the alliance of automobile manufacturers has started and moving beyond that, perhaps, and finally, educating drivers to choose and use technology wisely because technology can only be a partner here. it requires a responsible driver. thank you.

, canada, australia have undergone very significant reorganizations in the way they have overseen, leased, regulated, enforced safety and environmental protection in the offshore environment. did you look before you made some of your own proposals? it is unfair to ask a cabinet officer to talk about how seriously you might have considered moving something outside your own agency but has that come up? as the administration been involved in making judgments about proposals made by the former secretary and others about the functions and revenue raising and that they do not belong in the same department with the regulatory enterprises? that is a long list and i will hope that we get through a big -- a good bit of it. i would invite you to respond to any or as much of it as we can get through. >> absolutely, let me just say that there is no question that you should not ask me. you should ask about things we have done and things we will do in the future. those are all good questions that u.s.. with respect to the cultural mms, there is a clear statement i made when i hired and appointed with th
